Carpenter, Harriet – Correspondence and “Reminiscences", 1940-1948
Scope and Contents
These files were kept by staff members at Mount Vernon, most often by the Secretary to the Board, to document the lives and work of individual Vice Regents. Some items were given directly by the Vice Regents to be placed in their files, while other documents were located or collected by staff and interfiled at a later time. Types of material include mostly correspondence, clippings, obituaries, resumes, tributes and memorials, notes, memos, and ephemera.
